CVEC (campus tax)
Before you can enroll in a higher education establishment in France you must prove that you paid the campus and student life tax (CVEC). This tax helps develop social, sanitary, cultural and sports services for students. It also supports the preventive and educative actions for the health of students.
There are 2 possibilities for the payment of the tax:
- You pay 91€ (price for the 2019/2010 academic year) directly with the Crous before you enroll in your university;
- You are exempt from the tax: you will be given a certificate of exemption (see the conditions for the exemption below)
4 types of students are exempt from the campus tax:
- Scholars or recipients for an annual allowance
- Students with a refugee status
- Students with a subsidiary protection
- Students who are allowed to remain in the territory as asylum-seekers
Scholars who were notified of their right to receive a scholarship are automatically tracked on the https://cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr/ website. At the end of the process they will be able to download the certificate of exemption of this tax without paying the fees. In addition, if you get a notification of exemption over the academic year, you will get a refund of the amount you paid provided that you make the request before May 31st, 2019. The procedure also concerns those who paid the tax before the baccalaureate’s results and who would eventually not pass the exam.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: students who are enrolled in lifelong learning (including a work-study contract) and international students studying in France (through Erasmus programs or other) are not concerned by this tax. If one of these situations applies to you, you will not have to take any action.
Despite a decision from the French government to change the regulations concerning the registration fee for non-European students, we decided not to adhere to these new regulations. Indeed, we are very attached to open up our university and therefore voted unanimously that non-European students will pay the same registration fee as French students for 2019/2020.
